In connection with the registration, a one-time registration fee will be charged to each new member. In addition to this, members are also charged an annual fee of €75 (+ VAT) and a recycling fee.
The recycling fee is charged by tonne for all lead-acid batteries put on the market. ‘Lead-acid batteries put on the market’ refers to new lead-acid batteries imported, lead-acid batteries imported in new vehicles and equipment, as well as lead-acid batteries imported in used vehicles and equipment, meaning all batteries that will end up being recycled in Finland at some point. The Board of Akkukierrätys Pb Oy determines the level of the recycling fee twice a year. Currently, the recycling fee is €1.5/tonne (+ VAT).
